The Early English Text Society was started in 1864 for the purpose of bringing within the reach of the many the hitherto inaccessible treasures of Old English literature, and of clearing England from the reproach under which she has so long rested of caring little for the monuments of her early language and life. During the ten years of its existence the Society has been successful in issuing to its subscribers a large number of Texts illustrating the language, the history, the belief, and the habits of our ancestors. The publications of the Society appeal to those interested in the history of their native language and land; to men who can trace in these records the intimate connection which exists between the present and the past, and who can see in such records the dead past become a living reality.

The publications of The Early English Text Society are divided into Four Classes. I. Arthur and other Romances. II. Works illustrating our Dialects and the History of our Language, including a Series of re-editions of our early Dictionaries. III. Biblical Translations and Religious Treatises. IV. Miscellaneous. (The Ertra Series, which commenced in 1867, is intended for re-editions.)

The Publications for 1866 are out of print, but a separate subscription has been opened for their immediate reprint. The Texts for 1864, and all but three for 1865, have been reprinted. Subscribers who desire the Texts of all or any of these years should send their names at once to tlic Hon. Secretary, as many additional names are required before the Texts for 1866 can be sent to press.

The Subscription is £1 ls. a year sand £1 ls. (Large Paper, £2 12s. 60.) additional for the EXTRA SERIES), due in advance on the 1st of JANUARY, and should be paid either to the Society's Account at the Head Office of the Union Bank, Princes Street, London, E.C., or by Money Order (made payable at the Chief Office, London, and crosst. Union Bank ') to the Ilon. Secretary, ARTHUR G. SNELGROVE, Esq., London Hospital, London, E. (United-States Subscribers, who wish their Texts posted to them, musi pay for postage 5s. a year extra for the Original Series, and 3s. a year for the Extra Series.) The Society's Texts are also sold separately at the prices put after them in the Lists.
